Litter crew go on patrol

- EDEL KENEALY

Toddlers have been doing their bit to look after their local environmen­t with a litter pick.

Youngsters at Gleniffer Nursery launched the clean-up attack on the streets surroundin­g their Floors Street base after learning about World Earth Day.

Aged two to five-yearsold, the children showed great enthusiasm as they donned their high-vis vests, gloves and litter pickers as they got to work.

They cleared bags of rubbish from the local area, including Thomas Shanks Park.

The older children also enjoyed a forest walk as part of their learning and, with the help of a little duct tape, were able to make their own ‘nature belts’, sticking leaves, grass, flowers and twigs to their sticky waistbands.

Louise Reilly said learning about World Earth Day was part of the ethos of developing responsibl­e citizens.

She said: “The children have been doing so many kind activities and enjoy being very environmen­tally aware as we start to apply for our green flag award.”

Not to miss out, the younger children also enjoyed World Earth Day activities in the garden.
